Fine-Needle Aspiration Cytology/ Biopsy (FNAC/FNAB) is now a widely accepted diagnostic
procedure, which has largely replaced open biopsy. This method is applicable to lesions
that are easily palpable, for example swellings in Thyroid, Breast, superficial Lymph node
etc. Imaging techniques, mainly ultra-sonography and computed tomography, offer an
opportunity for guided FNAC of deeper structures.
The practice of diagnostic cytology needs proper training of the laboratory personnel including
cytopathologist, cytotechnologist and cytotechnician.
I'd known about the No Hope/Equus/Bikini Trouble/Summer Heat situation for, like, a year,
and had always thought it'd be fun to edit together a little creative virginity-losing scene
between Scot and Monalisa, since they were both clearly yearning for it back then (and
who knows, maybe they slipped away from their chaperones for a little hide-the-chipolata
in an empty trailer!).
training of new health staff is limited to production
of general medical doctors and nurses. there is little
systematic production of other essential health cadres
such as midwives, community midwives, sanitarians
and pharmacists, or health system management
professionals. For those who are newly-trained, few
systems are in place for planned deployment within the
public system, and there is a lack of mechanisms for
A detailed account of the field history, farm
maps, crop rotations, and a comprehensive plan
of operation for following organic protocols
need to be incorporated into the plan. All fields,
greenhouses, storage areas, warehouses, and
processing facilities used in organic production
must be discussed in the OSP. Growers with split
operations (organic and conventional production
on the same farm) need to include information on
how they plan to prevent commingling of the two
Often destinations are artificially divided by
geographical and political barriers, which fail to take into consideration consumer preferences or
tourism industry functions. An example of that is the Alps shared by France, Austria, Switzerland,
Italy by often perceived and consumed as part of the same product by skiers. For the purpose of
this paper destinations are considered to be a defined geographical region which is understood by
its visitors as a unique entity, with a political and legislative framework for tourism marketing and
Some persons enjoy landscapes rather like big art. Landscape paintings give
us a taste for the real thing. What we want is not ecology, but natural art.
Consider the autumn leaves in their colour, so much admired by my mother
and father, indeed by us all. If one is a formalist, then it does not matter
how the landscape originated. Find a vantage point where trees near and far,
foreground and background, are pleasantly framed, and admire the vista. The
historical genesis is irrelevant. A drive through the countryside is something
like a walk through a museum of landscape paintings....
The present writer’s Oxford mentor, Sammy Finer, phrased it as follows: simple power
is “the capacity to achieve desired results”.
Simple power exists in a wide variety of contexts:
mothers have power over husbands and babies; soap manufacturers have competing market
powers to sell their concoctions; administrators have power to implement existing policy.
But political power arises from a predicament: What should the common agreed policy
be, to be acted upon? This arises both in tyranny and in democracy, because all rulers need
others to carry out their policy, to act.
Supplementing the use of petrochemicals with renewable resources in more
than minor volumes must start soon. The research to accomplish that must start
Irrespective of the debate on the timing of a supply-side decline in fossil fuels,
demand continues as the population expands and standards of living in the
emerging nations increase. It is projected that long before renewable resources
become a replacement for fossil fuels, they will become necessary as a supple-
Many populations are composed of a mixture of individuals that reproduce at different
times, and these times are often heritable. Under these conditions, gene flow should be
limited between early and late reproducers, even within populations having a unimodal
temporal distribution of reproductive activity. This temporal restriction on gene flow
might be called ‘isolation by time’ (IBT) to acknowledge its analogy with isolation by
distance (IBD). IBD and IBT are not exactly equivalent, however, owing to differences
between dispersal in space and dispersal in time.
Over the past decade covered bonds, or securities issued by financial
institutions that are secured by dedicated collateral, have become one of the
largest asset classes in the European bond market and an important source of
finance for mortgage lending. The collateral, or “cover pool”, is usually put
together so as to obtain the highest possible triple-A credit rating. As a
consequence, covered bonds offer an alternative to developed country
government securities for bond investors interested in only the most highly
Reform of development processes is especially
important to niche developers and investors within the
cultural community because they are often least able
to incur the high transaction costs of idiosyncratic
public processes. Small arts entrepreneurs also lack
the financial and political clout to maneuver through
entrenched real estate development systems. The
greatest efficiency is created if there is clarity and
predictability at points of public entry and adequate
assistance at the civic level to maximize access.
The fourth empirical nding is the fact that the di¤erent volatility factors are due to systematic
risk, and therefore are priced in the cross section of stock returns. In a recent contribution, Adrian
and Rosenberg (2008) show that volatility factor models compare favorably to benchmark models
in explaining the cross section of stock returns.
While the statistical knowledge of stock return volatility is impressive, several questions remain
regarding their economic explanation.
We are all at different stages of development so must search out our own weak areas and
concentrate on those. Let’s hear it for the spirit of search and discovery. Anytime is a
time to be adventurous if it spurs you on to some worthy goal.
I have Xeroxed some drawings that Frederich Banbery did for the book, The Posthumous
Papers of the Pickwick Club by Dickens, that I think are and excellent example of
"Essence Drawings." There is a minimum of line and rendering, but a maximum of
gesture and feeling. And they radiate the type of humor...
Controlling for the pre-game expected
outcome, we are able to reject the hypothesis that the loss eﬀect after soccer games is driven
by economic factors such as reduced productivity or lost revenues. We also document that the
eﬀect is stronger in small stocks, which other studies ﬁnd are disproportionately held by local
investors and more strongly aﬀected by sentiment. Overall, our interpretation of the evidence
is that the loss eﬀect is caused by a change in investor mood.
A limitation to the study was the use
of key informants who were thought

For a few countries multiple responses

Schools choose which federal loan program they will offer to their
students and can participate in both. Although a school may provide loans
through both the Direct Loan Program and FFELP, the administrative
processes are different under each program, with Direct Loan schools
assuming additional responsibilities. Under both processes, schools
collect and provide data on whether borrowers are eligible to receive

They like artfully to prune their pines, cultivate simple flower

temple, silhouetting it all. They are hardly interested in admiring a pristine
ecosystem or geological formations.
